A boy and an aged woman were killed in automobile accidents yesterday. Mrs. Sarah Miller, 65 years old, of 848 East 167th Street, the Bronx, was killed by a bus loaded with thirty passengers at Prospect Avenue and 167th Street shortly after 10 o'clock last night. She was crossing the street with her granddaughter, Lillian Nudelman of the same address, and became confused when she discovered the bus was less than ten feet away.
Benjamin Minkoff, the owner and operator of the bus, told the police that the woman ran in the path of the vehicle as he tried to swerve to the side to avoid her.

Minkoff was locked up in the Simpson Street Station on a technical charge of homicide.
